Wanting something affordable and close to Stansted airport I found Harwood House B&B online. Contacted by the owners to check my ETA, they were both friendly and helpful. The room was spacious, clean and very comfortable! I even asked my partner if we could fit the bed on the roof of the car and take it home with us! Great... More

A huge thank you to Ian and Helen for looking after the 3 of us so well during V Festival. We had a fabulous stay in their B and B - a perfect stay for V Festival in every way! The cooked breakfast was delicious, the room was comfortable and welcoming after a full day at V Festival. The transport... More

A small group of us booked a few rooms at this B&B over New Year to be near friends. The two rooms that we had were lovely, a king size for me and my husband with a twin room for our children across the hall. Both rooms were spacious and elegantly furnished with tea making facilities and toiletries if needed.... More

We arrived very late at Stansted but the owners were very flexible and made sure we could still access our room at 2 a.m. The room was delightful and breakfast the next morning was very relaxing with a personal and cheerful service. The full English breakfast with home made jams was a joy to eat and set us up for... More

This B&B is just fab. Free parking on site, and I stayed in a Deluxe King Room with en suite shower room; the room was beautifully decorated and very well furnished (although the chair at the desk was plastic and cut into the back of my legs after I had been sat working for a while!) TV, toiletries and tea... More

We stayed for one night before flying from Stansted. The overall charge for B&B and a fortnight's car parking plus taxi to and from airport was extremely competitive. Our host, Ian, was very friendly and helpful and all the arrangements went like clockwork. Our room was very nice, clean and with a good bathroom. Good choices for breakfast. There is... More

We stayed here for the night before our holiday. It is fine for a one night stay before your flight,in a good location near a little town with a few pubs. It was very clean and did the job. What i did not like about this place is the fact that on the web site you see lovely pictures of... More
